Download OneDrive for Android - v5.39 (September 12, 2019)

Note: The Google Play store and the OneDrive app for Android aren't available in China. Also, because OneDrive.com is blocked in China by the government firewall, the OneDrive app won't work in China when you sign in with a Microsoft account.

What's new

  • For our consumer customers we load your photos faster and with a bit more flair.

  • For our business customers, you can now create Word and PowerPoint files from the plus button in the top right.

  • Note that you now need Android 6.0 or newer to install the OneDrive Android app.

Pre-releases

Join the OneDrive Preview for Android and get early access to new features in the OneDrive Android app.

OneDrive for Android release notes

This wouldn't be possible without your feedback. If you run into any issues, please open the app, shake your device and tap "Report a Problem."

  • Fixed a bug that was making it difficult to sign in, made a few things a bit faster, and polished up a few surfaces.

  • In addition to a PIN Code, you'll now be able to use your fingerprint to lock the OneDrive app.

  • We've improved our grid view to help your photos stand out and look their best as well as making it easier than ever to see what photos are getting backed up in the Photos tab.

Download OneDrive for iOS - v11.0 (September 14, 2019)

What's new

  • The app now has a new look and feel and our design team can rest easy. The header now sports a bolder look, search is easier to find, and things should just feel a little more familiar on your device.

  • Our Settings page also received a late summer cleanse. Things will be a little easier to find and fine tune to your preference.

  • Our scan icon - yes, that was a scan icon - now looks like a camera. This should alleviate some confusion around why a car rim was so prominent in the app. Tap the newly minted icon to digitize documents, whiteboards and even old photos.

  • And lastly, editing PDFs just got much, much easier. Doodling on PDFs or doing, you know, actual work is now a breeze. You’ll find our pens, eraser, and highlighter neatly placed at the bottom of the screen. 


Pre-releases

Join the OneDrive Preview for iOS and get early access to new features in the OneDrive iOS app. 

OneDrive for iOS release notes

This wouldn't be possible without your feedback. If you run into any issues, please open the app, shake your device and tap "Report a Problem."

  • Our text file viewer was having trouble rendering some characters. This has been fixed and now you should be able to understand the file content without being fluent in binary gibberish.

  • Sometimes, the app would switch from Personal to Business accounts when opening the app. This has also been ironed out and work life balance can once again be restored.

  • "Bold Text" users on the bleeding edge of iOS 13 Beta were experiencing a crash in the app. We're happy to report this has been fixed, and we thank you for your bold beta testing.

  • When sending sharing links in other apps, like iMessage and Mail, the app header would unexpectedly turn transparent. We're all for transparency, just not this kind.

  • File sizes on mobile weren't matching what was showing on OneDrive web. Unfortunately, this was a bug and not ground breaking middle out compression. Fortunately, this has been fixed.

  • When marking up some shared PDFs - like playing meeting hangman, or reinforcing I after E - edits weren't actually uploading for some users. They now will upload.

  • Users whose emails ended with "_", such as OneDriveFan4Life_@outlook.com, were unable to sign in to the app. This has been fixed by our engineer James_, and users like OneDriveFan4Life_ can once again sign into the app.

  • Safari pages as PDFs, uploaded via the Files app, were appearing to upload successfully - but in reality were successfully unsuccessful. We've fixed this problem and these uploads will appear, and actually, successfully upload.

  • This update contains bug fixes and stability improvements.

  • Text translation wasn't working for some users, turning a few options in the Settings page into a confusing game of 'guess that setting.' This has been fixed, and will look and read as you'd expect.

  • Now it's even easier to collaborate with others with our new and improved shared view for business customers! It's even easier to find things now that you can see who has shared documents with you and when they were shared.

  • File and folder names starting with the ^ character were showing as an empty name. We've fixed this issue and ^these ^file ^names ^will ^now ^all ^work. ^.^

  • This update also contains other bug fixes and stability improvements.

We fixed an issue where some users got stuck with endless loading after signing into a business account. Now, users can get right to their files post sign in - as you'd expect.

We've updated the color of our folder icon to a mix of tuscany and honey with of hint of butterscotch. Some call it just an icon update, but we call it the gold standard.

We've updated our app icon to reflect how we're simplifying and modernizing cloud productivity - with carefully crafted experiences that honor our Office heritage and welcome the future.

We fixed an issue with our Expiring Links date picker where the date and day of the week weren't displaying correctly. Rest assured that though Wednesdays can sometimes feel like Mondays, our date picker now has it sorted.

Download OneDrive Store app - v19.22.0 (September 18, 2019)

The OneDrive Store app for Windows 10 devices has been updated to give you a better experience, improve performance, and allow us to bring you new features faster than ever before.

Important: The OneDrive Store app does not sync your files. Read Which OneDrive app? to see if you're getting the most out of OneDrive or learn how to identify which version of OneDrive you are currently using.

The new version is rolling out to desktop computers over the next few weeks and will be available to existing customers as an automatic update. If you use the existing app on devices such as Xbox, Surface Hub, or HoloLens you can expect the update later in 2019. Because support for Windows 10 Mobile has ended, you won’t be able to use the new app on Windows phone.

What's new

  • A modern experience that more closely aligns with what you get on the OneDrive website today, including improved interaction with files and associated actions such as selecting multiple files, moving and copying files, and choosing different views.

  • A new Downloads pane where you can see and launch downloaded files in your default app.

  • Better previews for your files and photos.

  • You can sign in with just one OneDrive for Business and one OneDrive personal account at a time. 

  • Making files available offline is no longer supported. Read Working offline.
